With so many cable TV and satellite TV alternatives, today we thought we would explore another choice for you to watch TV. Many people are watching their favorite shows on the internet.
Watching TV providers on the internet is not new, but in recent times its popularity has increased dramatically due mainly to better video quality and an abundance of available channels.
Advances in technology now mean that you can find thousands of TV shows online and watch them in high definition. The technological advances made are amazing so it’s no surprise that more and more people are turning to their computers as media centers.
There are many internet TV websites that stream content to your browser. In the Uk there is BBC iPlayer which has a 7 day catchup service where you can watch programs that were aired in the last week as well as watching a live stream of BBC1,2,3,and 4 not to mention BBC news CBBC etc.
From the US there isn’t the facility to watch live streams but you can watch content from all the major networks like abc, Fox, CBS, NBC and content aggregators like Hulu etc (where shows from all the networks are located on one site).
Now as you probably know if you are not a resident of the UK or the US then you are prevented from accessing that countries content.
This is where a service like www.whatsonthebox.net comes in handy. For a small monthly subscription fee, your IP address is rerouted through a VPN tunnel which makes it appear that you are in the UK or the US and allows you to watch previously blocked websites.
As a whole, internet TV is really impressive. For a small monthly fee you get complete access to a ton of TV channels and shows to view on your computer.
